Sarasota’s Nik Wallenda Takes His Tight-Roping Talents to the Grand Canyon

Nik Wallenda

First it was Niagara Falls. Now Nik Wallenda plans his next big challenge as he prepares to walk 1,500 feet across the Grand Canyon on a tight-rope. This stunt is his most dangerous ever, as he will be elevated 1,500 feet above the ground, a height taller than the Empire State Building, and he’s doing it all without a harness or a net.

Wallenda, a Sarasota native, has been practicing right here in our own backyard. He’s holding daily practices and providing a chance for the public to observe. Growing up in a famous family full of tight-rope walkers, it has always been his dream to walk across the Grand Canyon, and on June 23rd, he’ll get a chance to fulfill that dream.

Even high above the Grand Canyon, Sarasota will still be on his mind. Wallenda recently told visitors, “When I’m walking there, I’ll be envisioning myself right here in Sarasota training.” After all, he’s just a hometown boy who’s made it big and loves sharing his success with the citizens of Sarasota.

If you can stomach it, Nik Wallenda’s dangerous walk will air live June 23rd on the Discovery Channel.
